May is cystic fibrosis (CF) awareness month! All month long, we'll be sharing CF facts and stories from our community in an effort to spread awareness. Our goal this month is to support those affected by cystic fibrosis.


Do you consider yourself an advocate for cystic fibrosis (CF)?

Join us this month to spread awareness for cystic fibrosis! Here are 5 simple ways to spread the word.

1. Tell your CF story

We want to hear what life is like for you now, the ups, the downs, and everything in-between! Once submitted, your story will be published on our community alongside the stories of others who live with or care for someone with CF.
